Techies Lab is an initiative launched in 2015 in Belgium, by a happy bunch of passionate volunteers, for kids and teenagers to discover, experiment, learn and play with technology (robots, coding, gaming, 3D printing...). Through one-week tech camps and one-day/afternoon discovery workshops, we foster our Techies' creativity!
Our objective is to instill the maker's spirit, deconstruct to better reconstruct and understand the inner working of things. Our workshops are fun (we laugh!), hands-on (we make things) and long-lived (we take back our projects home to further develop them).
Are you interested in electronics, robots, programming ... but you don't know where to start? Do you also like to move, breathe fresh air and you’re not afraid of being challenged? Good news! Techies Lab and The Outsider Club are organizing the perfect camp for you during the Carnival holidays: Outdoors & Robotics Adventures!
Together we will build robots and program them to do all kinds of fun things. Our robots won't be the only ones moving in all directions: we too will have outdoor adventures every day. We’ll be rock climbing, we’ll keep our balance in treacherous swamps, we’ll test our tactical skills during a great laserbattle and we’ll have a lot of team challenges.
And there’s more! This camp is an exchange between the different linguistic communities of Belgium. To understand one another, we will speak English, French and Flemish, without forgetting Arduino, the language of our robot!

English, French and Dutch
The price includes full board (teens eat and sleep on site) as well as an electronic kit worth €40 that participants can take home with them at the end of the camp.
We have lots of fun ideas: coding video games, building and programming badly-behaved robots, discovering the basics of cryptology... This said, what would you like best? - parent-child workshops or child only workshops? - age range? - Wednesdays, Saturdays, Sundays? We'd love to have your opinion.
